25.10.1997 Ian Walker was called onto make two early saves from Matt Oakley, Matt Le Tissier and David Hirst before Jose Dominguez struck a 30 yard drive into the top corner of the net and Spurs stayed ahead until the break, despite Dominguez being felled by Jason Dodd in the area with no penalty given and having a fine shot saved well by Paul Jones.

Ian Walker had produced good saves from Matthew Oakley, Matthew Le Tissier and David Hirst, but 10 minutes after the break, Lundekvam hit a shot that was deflected past him for the equaliser.  Tottenham went ahead again when Dominguez set up Ginola for a precise shot into the net on 65 minutes.  However, David Hirst hit two goals to give Southampton the win, with his first for the club in the 68th minute with the winner coming in the 80th minute.

01.03.1995 Spurs staged an amazing comeback in this FA Cup 5th Round Replay with Ronny Rosenthal becoming a Tottenham hero.

After being 0-2 down at the break, Ronny Rosenthal's cracking 56th minute drive from Barmby's cross put Spurs back in the match and a second similar goal two minutes later from the Israeli flew past Grobelaar at great speed from 30 yards took Tottenham level and the game into extra time.  

A third wrapped up his hat-trick and Spurs roared home with further goals from Teddy Sheringham, Darren Anderton and Nicky Barmby to record a 6-2 win .

12.09.1994 Southampton nick a win at White Hart Lane for the first time in the Premier League with two Matthew Le Tissier goals.

Jurgen Klinsmann had given Spurs the lead, but a penalty and then another stroked home from eight yards out, after Stuart Nethercott had mis-kicked, gave the South Coast side a win against the run of play.

07.02.1993 Nothing more different from the opening day of the season could have been imagined in the return game at the Lane.

SCBC went ahead  in the 21st minute, when a tackle on a forward in the area took the ball into the path of Iain Dowie, who scored at the far post.

Going into the second half, Spurs equalised on 55 minutes, when Anderton's left wing free-kick found Sheringham creeping in behind Dowie to head home at far post past Flowers.  Then within a minute, Anderton put in a high ball that came off Benali's head.  Teddy hit a volley that was going well wide, until Barmby raced in to slide the ball in to put Tottenham ahead.  Flowers could only palm out a cross by Samways from the left wing and Anderton shot over Benali's head on the line to make it 3-1 on 58 minutes.  Then straight from the kick-off, Spurs moved the ball forward and Samways squared a pass for Sheringham to power home his shot from 14 yards to make it four goals in 4 minutes and 44 seconds - a Premier League quick scoring record. 

Even then, the action had not finished, because Barmby went for a ball in the 61st minute that saw Benali charge in with his elbow and as Barmby was helped off, the SCBC defender was shown the red card.  Against the run of play, the visitors grabbed a consolation goal in the 67th minute as Richard Hall headed a goal from a corner unchallenged.

17.12.1985 This match drew little interest as the Sports Screen Super Cup was devised to take the place of the European matches teams who would have qualified for Europe in the wake of the Heysel disaster missed out on.

A ninth minute close range finish from Mark Falco put Tottenham ahead after keeper Phil Kite had saved a Clive Allen header.  On 20 minutes, Ossie Ardiles played a long ball through for Clive Allen to run onto and score the second, while Danny Wallace pulled one back for the home side after 35 minutes by shooting in from Steve Moran's low ball in from the wing.

Tottenham's win was secured by David Leworthy's header that powerfully met Gary Mabbutt's cross late on in the game.

However, in what was a tight game, with the Saints looking to avenge a 0-6 reverse here in the league in September, it was Ardiles' replacement, Micky Hazard that scored the only goal of the game to take Spurs through into the Fourth Round of a competition they had won in the two previous seasons.

Cyril Knowles played Martin Chivers through and the forward fired past Eric Martin to open the scoring in the 23rd minute.  Mike Channon pulled level just after half-time from a penalty for a foul on him by Knowles.

The game could have been won by either side and Tottenham had good chances when Chris McGrath forced a save from the Southampton keeper pushing the ball around the post and Mike England headed Ray Evans' cross narrowly over the top.

Tottenham's goal came with Martin Peters shooting home left footed from eight yards out at the Paxton Road end in 5 minutes and 31 seconds, but two goals from Mike Channon in the 76th minute and 50 seconds and 81 minutes and 13 seconds gave Southampton an unexpected win.

02.12.1972 Martin Chivers scored in the 1-1 draw, but it was Southampton's Mick Channon who denied Spurs the win at the Dell in a match where Spurs were guilty of not taking their chances.

Former Saints striker Martin Chivers put Spurs ahead in the 16th minute, but ten minutes later Mike Channon curved in a free kick to level the score.  Goalkeeper Eric Martin's dive at Chvers' feet put him off and the ball went off target when the Tottenham striker almost added a second with a header. 

The keeper also denied Gilzean in the second half with a dive at his feet to grab the ball as the Spurs striker tried to go around him. Ron Davies also did well to deny Chivers as he closed in on a loose ball in the six yard box from a corner.

25.08.1970 A 0-0 draw at the Dell was the result of missed chances in this First Division encounter.  The first half was a dour affair, with the second a bit more lively as both sides missed good chances.

Jimmy Pearce drew a good save from Eric Martin in the home goal and then sent a shot just over the bar.  With eight minutes left, Cyril Knowles struck a rising drive that Martin tipped over for a corner.

Southampton did put pressure on the Spurs goal, with Pat Jennings quick out to clear away from Brian O'Neil and was equal to two headers from Welshman Ron Davies from within the six-yard box.

After half an hour, Cliff Jones struck Spurs into the lead, but the quiet first half had not foretold of the second half goal avalanche.

Following the turn-around, Alan Mullery, Martin Chivers and Jimmy Greaves made it 4-0 to Spurs, before Dennis Hollywood put the ball into his own net off his chest and Greaves' second goal of the game was converted from the penalty spot.  The Saints got a consolation near the end through Ron Davies, who headed home past Jennings.

11.11.1967 Spurs implemented a new defensive set-up, which worked well as they took both points back to North London from the South Coast.

A fine first time effort from Jimmy Robertson shot Tottenham into the lead in the first half, before that advantage was doubled when Gilzean scored just after the interval.  Southampton pulled a goal back from Martin Chivers, who was the number 8 for the Saints that day, but despite a valiant effort, the home side could not salvage a draw.

26.11.1966 Spurs faced Saints on the back of another poor run of form.  The loss of the three previous home games to Blackpool, Aston Villa and West Ham and this cost us the title and a second Double, but Tottenham won 5-3.  Ron Davies put Saints ahead, but Alan Mullery equalised, then two goals from Cliff Jones and another from Dave Mackay put Spurs 4-1 up at the break.

When Davies hit the away side's second goal, it looked like a comeback might be on the cards, but Jimmy Greaves put away a penalty, completing the Spurs total.  Terry Paine got a late consolation third for Southampton, but Spurs ran out comfortable winners.

Martin Chivers, played in stripes that day and terrorised the Tottenham defence, in a game of many more chances than those that ended in the net.

While Southampton won the game, their six point lead at the top of the league was eaten away as the loss of Wayman and a flu epidemic hit the club, seeing them finish the season in third place.

28.03.1936 Spurs were on a bad losing run of four games coming into this match and the hopes of getting promotion back to Division One looked bleak.  After relegation manager Jack Tresarden had brought in some new players including Frank Grice, Joe Meek and Ralph Ward.

Six minutes in and Spurs take the lead with Willie Evans shot home. Seven minutes on and Meek volleyed in the second following a poorly cleared corner from Sargent.  Just after the quarter hour, it was 3-0 to Spurs through Hunt. following a neat inter-passing move from Grice and Willie Evans.  With forty-one minutes on the clock, Scriven in the So'ton goal could not hold a Hunt shot and the ball trickled into the net and just before the half-time break, Meek got his second to leave Tottenham five up.

It became six after 59 minutes, when Scriven fumbled another shot from Hunt and Meek tapped in the loose ball.  George Hunt then stuck away a 65th minute penalty having got up to take the spot-kick when he had been brought down by by Bradford.
